Last Line: That thou art love.
Subject(s): God; Prayer


Keep me, Father, kindly hold me,
As the shades of night enfold me,
In Thy loving arms so tender;
Help me always to remember
Thou art love.

Heart so sad and eyes all teary;
Day so long and oh so dreary,
House and garden, empty chair
Speak of one who's "Over there";
Yet Thou art love.

Help me that I may not falter;
Bravely as I now must loiter
Here on earth a little longer,
With Thy precious Word made stronger;
For Thou art love.

Help my loneliness and heartache;
Comfort bring -- Thou'lt not forsake
Children calling Thee in anguish,
But wilt grant their fervent wish,
Oh, God of love.

Give me work -- my bread be earning;
Health -- content -- peace -- while learning
Once again to find life's laughter;
Oh, never let my faith once falter
That Thou art love.
